Martin Scorsese's Wolf Of Wall Street Trailer Howls Online
Greed is good for Leonardo DiCaprio

17 June 2013  |  Written by James White  

submit to reddit

If the first trailer is anything to go by, The Wolf Of Wall Street sees Martin Scorsese kicking back in breezy, jazzy, exuberant mode, with Leonardo DiCaprio channelling a self-satisfied Calvin Candie mood rather than a suffering Jay Gatsby.

 

The movie has been adapted from Jordan Belfort’s memoir chronicling his hard-partying indulgences as a stockbroker in 1990s New York. Belfort, his colleagues and associated hangers-on all enjoyed the spoils of his financial gains, even as the criminal activities that sustained the party slowly came to light.

This first look at the movie focuses more on the early days of big paycheques, chimp friendships, dwarf-tossing, yacht time and beautiful women, but with the hint of Federal trouble lurking just around the corner. Based on the two moments he gets to run away with, Matthew McConaughey’s career resurgence shows no sign of stopping; he could be a highlight here.

With a script by Sopranos / Boardwalk Empire man Terence Winter and Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, Jon Favreau, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, Jean Dujardin, PJ Byrne and Kenneth Choi in the cast, The Wolf Of Wall Street will howl into our cinemas on January 17 next year.

Stupid trailer
I agree with post by Dene - annoying music and Matthew Mconaghey acting like a chimpanzee, for what seems like 5 minutes! More

Throwing money in the garbage
Will the movie also have scenes where he lights money on fire, or flushes it down the toilet? That would be AWESOME. It's, like, symbolism and shit. Subtle symbolism. It's a shame that after bored performances in avererage/above average Scorsese movies and knocking one out of the park in Django Unchained, DiCaprio is back to daydreaming for Scorsese again. This looks more like an Aviator than a Departed. More

interesting
The movie looks nuts, but fun. Plus love a bit of Kyle Chandler. Although I could have done without the chest beating at the end, that was lame. More

I'm sure the movie will be very good, coming from Marty, but that trailer is downright terrible. More
